Amy Butler's Style Stitches: 12 Easy Ways to 26 Wo&hellip by Amy Butler
7 of 7 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book, 8 May 2011
This is a beautifully presented book with stunning photography of Amys gorgeous bags. Its laid out well with simpler projects at the front and moving on to more advanced as you go through and including suggestions as to how to customise your creations.
I loved the separate envelope at the back containing the pattern sheets - far preferable to having to spend time photocopying pages!
The only downside is that some of the text is quite light coloured and not so easy to read in dim light.
Overall a lovely book with stunning and unique bag designs.
Easy Jams, Chutneys and Preserves by John Harrison
4 of 4 people found the following review helpful
This is great book for anyone interested in getting started making their own sweet and savoury preserves. The book is divided into different sections and explains the basics behind the methods before going on to the actual recipes.
There is no expensive equipment required, just fruit and/or veg and some empty jars is pretty much all you need to get started.
Its a great way to use up any homegrown produce and very satisfying to know exactly whats gone into the jam on your toast or the chutney in your sandwich.
